My DRY thick curly hair really likes this. I use it as a rinse out after I co-wash, and my hair behaves pretty well after. My hair needs all the moisture it can get, and this helps pretty well. Its not a miracle moisture-fixer, but I can definitely say my curls behave better since I started using this. Even though the product is very thick, my hair just drinks it right up! I leave it in while I shave, wash up, etc.
The smell is odd, it very sweet and powdery (if you can imagine that combination) to my nose. I dont notice it at all after I rinse it, probably because I also use a leave in treatment and styling products after. Although, on second thought, the other day when I was getting my hair shaped up, my hairdresser kept raving over how fantastic my hair smelled! Must be this condish since my other products really do not have a scent!

I've been using this for about 2 months and like it. It's not my HG but it does a nice job of adding moisture to my long, fine, curly hair.

My HG deep conditioner!!! This is the thickest, richest conditioner with all natural ingredients. Perfect for my long, thick, curly 3C hair. After I use a protein treatment or henna I always deep condition with AOHSR. (Otherwise I use it 1x/week). I apply to damp hair, add a little coconut oil and use my heat cap for 45 mins. LOVE this product!!!

This is a great conditioner for dry hair. I have thick, dry, curly hair, and I use this conditioner 2-3 times a week to add moisture. While I think it does a great job, I will not be repurchasing because the honeysuckle scent is so overpowering that I cannot stand it. The great effects of the conditioner does not outweigh the repugnant smell that stays with you for hours. When this bottle runs out I am going to try Matrix Biolage Conditioning Balm.

It is rare that I ever repurchase a specific conditioner, but I'm on my 4th bottle of this. It is fantastic on my 2b curls. I always rotate my hair products, and this includes shampoo and conditioner as well. I find this keeps my hair from ever getting used to any certain product due to build up and my products keep working for me. AOHR never weighs my hair down and always leaves me with shiny, bouncy curls, even if I don't follow with any product. I also leave it in overnight occasionally as a deep treatment and it works great for that too, especially if I mix in some jojoba oil and shea butter also. This works much better than other much more expensive masks. I highly recommend this conditioner, especially if you have dehydrated curls.
Conditioning tip: Try coating your hair in a cheapie condish (like Suave) before you get in the shower to keep your shampoo and even water from stripping moisture from the length of your hair. Also, if you wash with a sulfate-free shampoo (I really like Beauty Without Cruelty Rosemary Mint Tea Tree) you'll find that your hair is much healthier and more moisturized. Also, a weekly rinse of a couple of tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in four cups of water (after using your regular conditioner and without rising the vinegar mix out) will condition your hair as well as make it shiny and bouncy.

I LOVE this conditioner. It provides incredible conditioning and has truly transformed my hair. I had become used to my fine, highlighted, typically dry at the ends, not-so-dry at the roots hair and figured that was just the way it was going to be. I was already using shampoos with no sulfates but there wasn't a huge difference until I introduced this conditioner to my regimen. I cannot say enough about it. It is all natural, cruelty-free, and actually conditions my hair and provides that slip that alot of natural conditioners do not. It has reached HG status in my book and I have recommended it to friends and people who have complimented my hair since I've started using it. I will say that I am not fond of the scent, as I find it sickly-sweet, but it fades once my hair is dry. I still make sure that my products are sulfate-free and now I am on the lookout for ditching parabens too. I alternate my shampoos between Aubrey Organics Green Tea and Alba Coconut Milk Wash. For styling products I use Jane Carter. All of the above, I absolutely love!

I'm always on the hunt for fabulous hair products without all the yucky preservatives and chemicals...so I wanted to like this conditioner, but it just didn't work for me. At first the texture is rich and creamy, but then after rinsing left a heavy film on my hair! My hair is naturally curly (3b) so I thought that the 'film' was just extra moisture that was good for my hair...However, as my hair dried it looked dull and didn't feel soft at all. I do follow a modified 'Curly Girl' routine and wash with condtioner- so this product could work for someone who still uses traditional 'suds' shampoo.

I give this product a 5 for my boyfriend's hair, not mine, for my hair it is more of a 4. I have extremely thick, slightly wavy, coarse hair, which is dry at the ends and soft at the root. My boyfriend has lovely, tight tight curls, but his hair is extremely dark, shiny and thick. I never thought I would be saying this, but I think the conditioner was too thick and rich for my hair. It moisturized the heck out of his hair and defined his rings of curls so nicely. The ingredients are wonderfully natural and divine. The scent is not so delightful, but fades. I would recommend it to those who have thick hair, very damaged and dry, and those who are transitioning from chemical straighteners to natural hair, or simply those who already have it natural.

How can I describe this product....hmmmm....... Well firstly its really thick and I love when conditioners are really thick. Secondly, when you put it in your hair it detangles pretty good and it makes your hair feel like heaven. BUT......... and this is a very big BUT....I always like to see what my hair feels like when I RINSE the conditioner out of my hair. And this does a terrible job once rinsed out. The first time I ever used it it I thought I was being Punk'd or something. In my hair it made my hair feel so soft and silky and made me say ohh la la. But once you rinse it out, your like what the hell happened to all the goodness I was just feeling. Now I just add it to my deep conditioner just to get rid of it.
Another reason why it got 3 lippies is because sometimes the smell of it is nauseating. Maybe i'm just sensitive but its really nauseating to me.

I love this conditioner- it's super hydrating and is just a notch above a deep conditioner for me. Meaning I can use it every other day or every day if my hair is particularly dry, without being weighed down or greasy. It makes your hair super soft and manageable, but strong never limp. I usually alternate with the Swimmer's shampoo so my hair stays bouncy and light but moisturized.

For months, I've been looking for a more affordable alternative to my beloved John Masters Organics Honey & Hibiscus Reconstructing shampoo and conditioner ($28 each--ack!) and found it with Aubrey Organics. The Honeysuckle Rose shampoo and conditioner are recommended in a great book I was reading called The Green Beauty Guide, so I decided to check them out.
This conditioner is so thick and a pretty pearlescent color. Instead of water, it contains a base of coconut fatty acids followed by great ingredients like organic aloe, shea butter and rosehip seed oil. It moisturizes really well and makes my hair smooth, soft and fluffy -- yet contains no silicones! My color even looks richer. Best yet, I got mine on sale at Whole Foods for $9 each!

Love it, smells great and works great. My super dry ends are very happy. I have very thick hair and I'm impressed by how little I have to use. Great stuff.

Edit: I knocked this down to 2 stars. The product worked well on my hair in the winter, but the scent is simply atrocious to me. I haven't used it since.
If a conditioner could be described as "interesting," then this one would be. First, the scent: it's more of a honeysuckle bubblegum. The rose is lost on my nose, all that remains is a sickly sweetness that I can only assume is honeysuckle. It does scent the hair, but I would describe the overall effect as unoffensive rather than bad.
It's a good thing that I bought this from a store that didn't have testers, because I might have refrained from purchasing it based on the scent alone. However, I'm really glad that I did. Here's why...
The ingredients are simple and effective -- shea butter, aloe, wheat germ and jojoba oil are the major components of this conditioner (not just afterthoughts for putting on the label). These ingredients are super conditioning for long hair (mine is thick and has a very slight wave). I have been using this for a month, since February. I am really pleased with how it moisturizes my hair without making it feel dirty. I only blow dry once a week or so, but I find that using this conditioner is enough to protect my hair. In the past, I would shampoo and condition and then rub a little shea butter balm (by Hamadi) or even just a drop of avocado oil into the ends of my hair before blow-drying. With this conditioner, I don't need to do that. So I recommend it -- the packaging is unattractive, the scent is unappealing -- but it really, really works and makes your hair lovely.

I love this conditioner! It is very moisturizing and conditions your hair very well. However, it's very conditioning, and my hair gets over conditioned easily, so if I use it to often it over conditions my hair. But I definitely recommend it!

Based on the reviews here, I really wanted to like this product. My hair is fine and straight, and while it does a great job of detangling, it leaves my hair flat and lifeless. I definitely won't be repurchasing.

I'm trying to slowly phase out all hyper-chemicaled products, and conditioner really was one of the hardest things for me to switch out, since I hadn't found an all-natural product that can hold a candle to good salon brands. But this one actually works to tame and hydrate my wiry, puffy, lion's head. I won't say that it's as good as the Matrix or Redken ones that I've tried and loved, but it's pretty damn close. Basically, for an all-natural, organic conditioner, its the best I've found thus far.
Also, it's really concentrated and thick (my boyfriend finds it too thick and difficult to spread!), so it's actually a great value. I find the scent to be a bit too sweet/floral, but I'm a kind of a perfume-phobe.

Whats not to like about this product?! im really big into all natural products, and this is my absolute favorite conditioner. i have very long hair (down to my bum) and the ends get really dry. this conditioner is thick and makes all the frizzies go away and completely hydrates my hair. you don't need to use a lot either! a little goes a long way.
it works wonders... smells amazing, leaves hair smooth and shiny, improves the overall health of my hair, is not tested on animals, is gentle, etc etc. you can use it daily, or as a deep conditioner too.
other conditioners give me breakouts on my cheeks :( and this one never will.
i recommend you try it! :D

I was skeptical a "natural" conditioner could work as well as Kerastase products once did for me, but I was pleasantly surprised!
I have long, fine, naturally wavy-curly, dark brown hair (not dyed) that I usually blow out and straighten. I've switched back and forth between Aubrey's Honeysuckle Rose and Green Tea lines, but I haven't used conventional shampoo or conditioner since trying Aubrey products! This conditioner in conjunction with the HR or GT shampoo leaves my hair soft, light (not weighed-down) and more wavy than curly. I usually don't feel like I have any product or residue in my hair after using this. But when my hair begins to get a little dull or weighed down, the Green Tea Clarifying Shampoo seems to remedy this. I'm less crazy about the HR Shampoo than the HR Conditioner - or the GT Shampoo. Ironically, since the HR shampoo is supposed to be moisturizing, I find it more drying than the GT Shampoo.
I love that Aubrey products are free of the harmful ingredients and parabens most cosmetics contain, and that they're not tested on animals. This product is also vegan.
The scent is gorgeous! I love the way it lingers. I've wanted hair that smells like flowers since Kevin Arnold remarked about Lisa Berlini's and his dream-girl-from-the-movie-theater's scented hair on The Wonder Years! I don't find it overwhelming, but I can understand why some find it cloying - it's very true to nature. It smells like actual honeysuckle. When you smell a honeysuckle blossom the scent is gorgeous but a bit much, almost sickly sweet.
I used to be turned off by Aubrey's packaging. I think I once described it as hideous : ) Although I don't entirely disagree with my original assessment, I now find it sort of charming! Of course this has something to do with the fact that I've had success with Aubrey products. But I also like the unpretentious-70's-household-shampoo/conditioner vibe it has about it. I don't find it difficult to squeeze out of the conditioner even though it's so thick.
This product in conjunction with Aubrey's HR or GT shampoo works differently but as well as Kerastase products did for me, and I get to know I'm not damaging my hair as much as I used to, or supporting animal testing! My mom also loves this conditioner and the HR shampoo.

I love this conditioner! I keep coming back to it.
When I apply it in the shower, I find that it smoothes down my hair nicely. It leaves my shoulders a bit slick, another clue that it's working! I even use a bit of it to massage my scalp, with no ill effect. Perhaps it would leave some residue given my hard water, if it weren't for the fact that I always use an acid rinse afterward.
My towel-dried hair feels soft and moisturized, but definitely not weighed down. This conditioner, I find, achieves just the right balance, although I do add a bit of oil and leave-in for extra protection.
The smell doesn't bother me. (Actually, I can't smell much after all the chlorine :-() But I would say that it's delicate. For the record, though, I've thrown out quite a number of cheaper products (e.g. Head & Shoulders) JUST based on their overwhelming chemically fragrance.
It is a tad difficult getting the product out of the bottle, but nothing really aggravating.
I have fine, medium-thick, dirty-blond hair that's just past bra-strap length.

I'm very grateful to MUA for helping me find this! I have eczema and my scalp itches a lot. It doesn't irritate my scalp, and it's not as good as 'cones for making your hair soft and shiny, but it does a pretty good job for having all natural ingredients. It is a bit hard to get out, since the texture's more like toothpaste than like your average liquid-like shampoo or conditioner, and the smell can be slightly cloying, and it's a bit pricey for the amount you get, but it's a decent conditioner that doesn't bother my skin.
